- iPod. iConic.
- An iPod is more than just a music player. It's an icon. It's classic and timeless in both the beauty and simplicity of form, as well as its use and social prevalence. Although many people are switching to iPhones and other smartphones for their music devices, there is still a timeless essence to an iPod.
In order to convey that message, I used the classic photo of Marilyn Monroe from The Seven Year Itch over the steam grate. I used Photoshop Quick Selection and converted it to a path to get a really clean silhouette. I masked her with a vector mask and then added a black color overlay. Then I cut out a few defining lines to accentuate the pose.
I used Illustrator to trace a photo of the earbuds, and iPod, and to create the cord. I drew the cord over top of the original Marilyn image so that the split and 2 halves of the cords lined up with the deep V in her dress. Then I imported the iPod and the cord with ear buds into Phoshop as separate smart objects.
